Does anyone have a dvd with a working copy of Windows Vist on it that they would be prepared to send to me?
I'll send back a blank DVD if required.

I have seen similar articles - but as the download is only to a select few i thought i'd ask so i could try it out

I believe the download is no longer available. As for using someone elses copy, you will not have your own valid product key.

Ahh, true. It may not be legal.

true - but the vista beta ceases to work in 2007 and its a beta which microsoft were offering for free so i'm not totally sure if if the same licencing laws apply (i.e. if i was asking for your copy of xp with your licence key.

Meh, OK, I'll try and send you one I guess. If it's on a DVD/RW I'll need it back!
